Professor is free, white, and at least
21. Blood ties are strong and busi-
ness is pressing, even for college
professors, and the outside world
should have kept its nose in the
right place.
At last the senior literary class
has a president and a bitter fac-
tional dispute is at an qnd. The
situation was at best a difficult one
and its satisfactory settlement Is
indeed worthy of recognition. Tied
on the first ballot, the two candi-
dates, Raber and Sutherland, found
themselves the center of a campus
political storm. Reports of frauds
in the balloting were numerous
and a great deal of ill feeling re-
A series of conferences followed
between representatives of the
Student council and J. A. Bursley,
dean of students, but it was not
until the two candidates mutually
agreed to withdraw from the elec-
tion that the situation was cleared
up, and a new election with a
cleared field made possible.
The sacrifices made bythe two
candidates are not to be taken
lightly as the office meant a great
deal, undoubtedly, to each. That
they did withdraw is an exceptional
indication of good sportsmanship
and to be commended most highly.
The second election, held Mon-
day afternoon, was as absolutely
fair and impartial as possible. That
it recognized another candidate as
president seems of importance to
many. But it is chiefly to be re-
garded as a straightforward,
honest election. The voting by
freshmen and sophomores, cus-
tomary in elections of other years,
was totally absent and the result
recognizes that it is possible to
conduct an honest election on the
Michigan campus.
All too often in the past, this has,
unfortunately, not been true. There
have been many occasions, it is
regrettable to remember, when any
but honest methods were successful
in nominating and electing candi-
dates. That the time has come,
tardy though it may be, when
Michigan can have clean elections
all of the time may well be hoped

Night Editor-Clarence Edelson

Rumors concerning the absencE
of Prof. Fielding H. Yost from his
duties with the department of
physical culture and subsequent
rumors concerning his taking over
the instructiop of physical culture
of several promising young men at
Vanderbilt university, have been
spiked. Professor Yost merely
went to Nashville, Tenn., "on busi-
ness," he having a great deal of in-
terest in a bank there. While there,
it is entirely likely that he will
visit his brother-in-law, Daniel
McGuigin, who has charge of the
group of promising young men
Professor was said to have gone to
aid-the Vanderbilt university
football representatives.
Both Professor Yost and the
Vanderbilt coaches have denied
stoutly that the Professor had any
idea of even -leaving the dear old
University of Michigan that until
recently, has furnished abundant
football material and lots of alum-
ni to help build nice buildings for
the athletes, and to be named after
famous local characters.
The attitude which Professor
Yost has taken concerning his trip
is perfectly all right. Professor
Yost of the physical culture depart-
ment has as much right to take
his yearly vacation or to leave
town on business without having
to announce the fact and sign a
requisition slip as has any other
of the scholars on the faculty. A
scurrilous report by a metropolitan
paper, sent by a reporter who was
not sure of his facts, can cause a
lot of trouble as has been shown,
but all famous men meet it sooner
or later.
It was entirely unfortunate,
both for the Professor and for
Michigan football fans who have
respect for the coach of the foot-
ball team, that three losses, two on
successive Saturdays, and that
poor material on the football squad
came together to stare the readers
of the latest story in the face.
Professor Yost has before gone in
such a situation, and has returned
holding as much respect as before.
He has announced firmly and loud-
ly that he is not head coach--he
coaches the ends and backs. Tad
Wieman is now head coach and

Why is Mr. Yost in the fall
like the trees in the spring?
Because they both leave when
we need them most.

The opera is a uirect departure___
from the stiff and artificial style
that was written at the time. Of1
similar interest are the "Toccatta
and Fugue in D Minor" by Bach, s
which, unlike most of Bach's com-
positions, were not intended for
church music. These two selec-
tions stand out as being of the=
master's most dramatic and most
popular works. Another number

Lamarter is adiaphanouscompo-

In answer to the letter to Mr.

some of the following suggestions
under his consideration.
1. Just how do you arrive at
that "Barbaric Immigrant" idea?
2. The saloon, an American in-
stitution, was here before the
"Horde of Barbarians" came.
3. The "best people" all read
with glee how their forefathers
traded firewater for the Island of

rich in the rum and slave trade
and the next generation carried
on in the saloon and brewery.
5. Under present conditions the
rich American has his cellar full of
good booze and even the bar with
brass rail; the "Barbaric Immi-

It occurred to me, while reading
your column yesterday, that the
tone of the paragraph addressed to
me was not so reverent as one;
could wish for an elderly member
of the faculty, such as I have the
honor to be. You insinuated,
among other things, that my pub-
lished contribution was lacking in
humor. I do not understand. I
laughed heartily at it, myself. And,
furthermore, I was always con-
sideted a great wit throughout my
life at Oxford, or was it Cambridge?

The arrival of "The Kingdom of

perhaps an anticlimax to the ap-
pearance last week of George Ar-
liss in "Tle Merchant of Venice,"
but whatever her appeal to the
public may be, Miss Barrymore's
appearance is a bright light in the
rather dark world of Detroit the-
The play which she has chosen
as vehicle for her amazing art is

which gives her an opportunity to
play through the whole sequence
of a girl's life. She makes her first:
appearance as a nun, 19 years old,
usually unrecognized by her audi-I
ence who expect her to give some
small sign at least of her fifty odd
years. The second act shows her
ten years later, more mature in
her faith. A period of forty years
passes before she again appears,
